Shawn’s Deals of the Week

Shawn’s Deals of the Week

Every week I will be Shawn’s Deals which will include 3-5 listings that I think are great investments for those who are looking to buy and hold, build, and move in. The neighbourhoods that I explore are:

  1. Vancouver West
  2. Vancouver East
  3. East burnaby
  4. South Burnaby
  5. North Burnaby
  6. New Westminster
  7. Surrey

Why are you doing Shawn’s Deals of the week?

There are so many aspects to take in to account when finding the right investment property.  You want to look at location, price point, location of that exact property, the details of the home and any issues with the lot. Whether it’s sloped, at a high point on the block that allows for a view or whether it’s riddled with trees that make it near impossible to build on without going through a lengthy process with the city halls. I will try to narrow searches down for you to make the selection process easier.

Sold! North Burnaby 2 Bedroom Condo Sells Fast With Multiple Offers!

Property: #202 3939 Hastings St.
List Price: $398,000
Sale Price: TBA
Sold Date: March 20, 2017

If real estate is all about location, then it’s not surprising Burnaby real estate agents James Garbutt and Denny Dumas sold this North Burnaby 2 bedroom condo for over asking, in less than seven days after multiple offers! The 780 sq. ft. unit is located in The Heights, one of Burnaby’s most vibrant neighbourhoods.

Right outside the front door is a world of culinary and shopping delights. Literally. Hastings Street is a multicultural meeting place where traditional Italian delicatessens share the same block with Vietnamese Pho restaurants, Parisian bistros, and one of Greater Vancouver’s most renowned restaurants, The Pear Tree. There’s a butcher, a baker, and even a fish monger. Everything from hardware to used books to pet supplies is within a short walk. And downtown Vancouver is a quick 10-minute ride on transit away!

The bright, North Burnaby 2 bedroom condo is located in The Sienna, a small complex that was built in 1998. It’s efficient layout makes it seem much larger. The spacious kitchen is open to the dining and living areas. The balcony is partially covered for year-round barbecues. Its two bedrooms are located on opposite sides, and it would be very easy to convert one of them to a large home office. The master bedroom has its own 4-piece ensuite.
